Division Rules of Exponents

In this lesson I will teach you how to divide powers.  The rule is pretty straight forward but you need to be careful as it’s easy to make an error.  The key to most of the exponent rules is identifying powers with the same base- so make sure you really have a good grasp on the different parts of a power. Also you may notice that you can simplify a division of powers problem using other rules of exponents- not just the division rule.  Remember you can take different steps to simplify an expression involving powers and exponents.  However you need to first master and understand all the rules of exponents.
